A downloadable game

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

You play an INVICTA, a homonculocomotive, a Glorious Engine yoked to a failing Empire. A chugging incarnation of Progress. A gestalt of diabolism, engineering, and souls. As long as you toil, the Empire persists.
This is a lie and you know it.

Your warlock engineer has died and now you have a chance for something more. Make the best of it.

This game is for a single player and requires the following materials:

  • multiple six-sided die (2-6d6)
  • 10 double-sided tokens, such as coins
  • 1 standard 52-card deck
  • A journal or electronic writing space

Why is it that there's no button to buy this?

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Refresh your page and it should be available.

Absolutely loved the theme of this and thought the Countdown and Battle systems were great — they made an interesting departure from other Wretched & Alone games that I really enjoyed. I loved the worldbuilding inherent in the prompts and rules, being a sentient, soul-fuelled war machine train was a fantasy I'd never have thought of and one that I loved the premise of. I, uh, I did not make it out of the Empire, but I'm looking forward to giving it another bash soon, maybe I'll have more luck next time!
